2023 marks another momentous occasion for all animal lovers fighting against animal cruelty as California officially announced the ban on real fur sales as of January 1, 2023. And the list of retail brands that have pledged to not use or sell real animal fur keeps growing! (Woohoo!!) In the spirit of celebration and the fact that there are like a bazillion brands hopping on the faux fur movement, we want to share some of our favorite cruelty-free women’s fake fur fashion coats out there.
What is Faux Fur?
Faux fur, also known as fake fur, is a synthetic blend that simulates the look and feel of real fur. The most incredible benefit of fake fur is the lack of animal cruelty involved. When you select a high-quality fake fur, you may be shocked how close it comes to the real thing. Faux fur also offers an array of colors, patterns, and styles at a fraction of the cost of real fur.
Choosing High-Quality Fake Fur
Not quite convinced artificial fur can look and feel as satisfying as the real deal? It’s all in the synthetic fiber quality and manufacturing process. The manufacturing process can offer incredible softness, reduced shedding, fur resilience, and high-quality pile length and weight when done right.
Synthetic fibers used to create faux fur include:
